Campaign Speeches Feature Promises; 
Brass Band Adds to General Fanfare 

In anticipation of the ASB general election to be held Monday, 
March 3, from 10 a., m. until 2 p. m. in the main hall of Wood-Mar, 

campaign speeches were made in chapel yesterday amid a flurry of 
fan-fare which included the traditional brass band. 

Highlights of the soap-boxing were the campaign promises made 
when Ralph Beebe and Randall Emry, the two ASB presidential as- 
pirants, took the platform. 

Beebe, the first of the two to speak stressed the need for a com- 
plete modernization of student government when he attacked the lack 

of organization within the student 



Dr. G. A. Hodgin Scheduled to Conduct 
Spring Religious Emphasis Week Here 

Wednesday will mark the commencement of the spring Religious 
Emphasis Week, sponsored by the Student Christian Union and the 
college church. 

The ten-day series will be conducted by Dr. G. Arnold Hodgin 
of Ohio yearly meeting, past president for many years of the National 
Missionary association. 

The services will be held until March 16 in the college chapel at 
10:30 a. m. on school days and at 
the church at 7:30 every evening. 
Between services Rev. Hodgin will 
counsel the students personally in 
a program aimed at their individ- 
ual problems. 

In preparation for the services, 
the Newberg Friends church is 
holding cottage prayer meetings 
and the George Fox college SCU is 
directing special student prayer 
meetings yesterday, today, Mon- 
day and Tuesday. Under Isaac 
Smith's leadership, the former will 
meet at the homes of Paul Parker 
and Isaac Mardock tonight, on 
Monday at J. W. McCracken's and 
Clem Brown's homes and at the 
residences of Harlan Jones and 
William McLeland Tuesday. The 
hour is 7:30 p. m. 

At the school SCU prexy Ran- 
dall Emry has announced noon 
prayer sessions as well as all-day 
observance of the NAE World Day 
of Prayer today. 

Kcntuckian Hodgin, who will be 
accompanied by his wife, comes 
with a wealth of religious exper- 
ience: he has been an evangelist 
for many years and in the 1930's 
traveled the world on a mission 
tour. In addition are his educa- 
tional qualifications: he was a

Missions held the spotlight on 
the GFC campus last Saturday. 
The campus was the scene of the 
All-Oregon IVCF-FMF mission- 
ary conferette, sponsored by the 
local Foreign Missions Fellowship 
chapter. More than one hundred 
thirty students and missionaries 
attended the conferette. 

Featured speaker of the day was 
Wesley Gustafson, national mis- 
sionary secretary for Inter-Var- 
sity Christian Fellowship. Ten 
missionaries from all of the six 
main mission fields, representing 
many types of mission work in- 
cluding evangelism, education, 
medicine, translation and others, 
spoke during the day. 

Mr. Gustafson spoke during the 
7 p. m. session, the closing service 
of the conferette, challenging the 
assembled students to "lift up 
your eyes to the fields and pray 
the Lord of the harvest that He

over. One highlight was the hour 
when four of the missionaries re- 
counted some of their actual ex- 
periences on the field, outstanding 
experiences where they were in-

to Christ. 



body as a whole. "The attitudes 
. . . of our students are reflective 
upon the organiaztion of the entire 
school, including the board of trus- 
tees and faculty," he emphasized. 

His promises included a revision 
of the nominating system .which 
would do away with the present 
petitions and primary elections; a 
stronger bond between the student 
body and its alumni, as well as co- 
operation with other collegiate 
councils. 

Emry Emphasizes Humility 

Randall Emry, whose name is 
opposite Beebe's on the presiden- 
tial ballot, states, "My source of 
strength is not in myself but in 
God." Although he did not give 
his platform, he emphasized that 
he is not for the Comnfunists, the 
Democrats, nor for any ambassa- 
dors being sent to the Vatican, but 
that he is for GFC. 

Betty Brown and Jo Hendricks, 
in campaigning for Crescent editor 
both emphasized the need of a 
paper with student reader interest. 

"I shall do my best to fill the 
capacity of ASB secretary," stat- 
ed Maribeth McCracken. Her op- 
ponent, Rosetta Ballard was un- 
able to speak because of illness. 

Orville Winters, 5n speaking for 
treasurer candidate Carmen Par- 
center, promised, "... integrity in 
keeping the funds." 

Those students who feel they 
have an office cinched by merit of 
being its only nominee are Harold 
Weesner, running for chief treas- 
urer; Margaret Weber for L'Aral 
editor and Verne Martin for vice- 
president. 



Nigel, Pat Shockey to Play Lead Roles 
In Religious Drama, "Crown of Thorns' 

Nigel and Pat Shockey will play the lead roles of Pontias Pilate 
and his wife Claudia Procula in the Actorators spring production, 
"The Crown of Thorns," director Marvin G. Baker revealed today. 

Tryouts for the three-act religious drama were held Wednesday 
evening. 

The play, which revolves around Pilate's decision concerning 
Jesus and climaxes on the dark 



day of the crucifixion, features

Claudia, a dark and attractive

ally portraying the need of the 
field and the call of God, Mr. Gust- 
afson urged the students to begin 
laboring now so that God could 
send them forth. Several students 
stood in response to the question, 
"Have you felt the call of God 
through this day, directing you to 
the mission field?" 

Viewing the response of the stu- 
dents, Bob Adams, president of the 
local FMF explained, "This makes 
the past month and a half of pre- 
paration for this conferette com- 
pletely worth while." 

During all the sessions, in sur- 
veys on both areas and methods 
and in dicussion groups on the 
same subjects held immediately 
after the surveys, the students 
concentrated on the needs, the 
progress and the present condi- 



girl of eighteen 
lieves Jesus to be a blasphemer, 
and she is seeking the death of 
Barabbas, who is her father's mur- 
derer. 

Paul Ralphs will appear as Clas- 
sius, a brash, ambitious, self-cen- 
tered Roman soldier who is the 
captor of Barabbas and who is at- 
tracted by Marah's beauty. Cor- 
nelius, a wily, oily court adviser 
who finally convinces Pilate to 
make his decision, will be imper- 
sonated by Dick Zeiler. Stephen, 
disciple to Jesus but enamoured 
with Marah, will be characterized 
by Elmer Kendall. 

In a supporting role is Sheldon 
Hinshaw as Gaius, Pilate's son, 
an eager, sensitive boy of twelve 
who cannot understand his fath- 
er's act in ordering Jesus cruci- 
fied. 



NAE Day of Prayer 
Observed on Campus 

Today has been set aside as the 
World Day of Prayer by the Na- 
tional Association of Evangelicals. 
The day is being observed by 
Christians of every land as a time 
of prayer and supplication before 
God. 

On the George Fox college cam- 
pus the day of prayer was opened 
at 7:15 a. m. by a prayer meeting 
in the student body prayer room 
with Virginia Peters bringing the 
devotional thought. The prayer 
room will be open until 3 p. m. 
with a different leader present 
each hour. A special chapel was 
held with Dr. Parker in charge 
and student participation. 

In Newberg the day is being ob- 
served at the Baptist church with 
Tasuko Maekawa and Sam Wang 
of the GFC student body speaking 
on the prayer needs of their people 
at 2 p. m.

What Is Revival Worth to You? 

There are four days left to decide whether we 
really want a revival on campus during Religious 
Emphasis Week. Think it over. Is it worth the cost 
it will be to you? 

The man who recently contributed much to our 
belief that revival is Avorth anv cost is Oscar Brown, 
pastor of Greenleaf (Idaho) Friends church. In his 
Wednesday chapel report of the Greenleaf revival, 
he laid down the much-quoted pattern for revival: 
it must be "prayed down," "preached up" and "pow- 
ered in"; it must be conviction, confession ("as deep 
as God reveals") and commitment. 

What will it cost you? Prayer, and the necessity 
of abiding by the consequences of that prayer. 

Without a program like this the result would be 
nil. With a program like this the result could be mir- 
aculous. Just how willing are you to be part of that 
miracle? 

— J.H. 

Editor Ruefully Clears Desk . . . 

It would be much easier to say glibly, "It's been 
fun; goodbye!" but that is not precisely how I feel 
about finishing my term as Crescent editor. Rather, 
I clear away the top of my ASB office desk with re- 
flective seriousness. 

My mind travels back a year to that time when 
I hesitantlv assumed the responsibility of choosing a 
staff. I did not then fully realize how largely an edi- 
tor must depend upon this "right arm" if he is con- 
sistently to "get the job done". 

Through the year, as I have worked with the 
group which were finally chosen, I have come to con- 
sider them as indispensable units, each contributing 
a part toward fulfilling the purpose of our paper. 

Beebe has made the sports page a means of re- 
living those exciting moments at the games, as well 
as contributing superb originality in his "Sports 
Scoreboard". 

Jo Hendricks, as news editor, has many times 
shared my midnight oil in "getting the paper to 
press". Jo is a real journalist and can be commended 
for fulfilling her responsibility so adeauately. 

The business sfaffhas been an efficient group 
(I hope we are still operating in the black), and I 
should like to offer the first "thank you" to Harry, 
Janet, Lea and Wally for the thankless job they have 
performed so willingly. 

And then I think of all those reporters, who never 
knew when the editors might decide to set the dead- 
line forward a day. These writers receive very little 
recognition for a seemingly endless job, at which 
they have, nevertheless, persisted. How about let- 
ting them know you have appreciated the work they 
have done! 

I hear Mr. Baker, our faculty adviser, coming 
down the hall, and suddenly stop day-dreaming. I 
suppose I should attack the contents of the desk 
drawers before I ruefully resign my office key to its 
newly-elected owner. — L.W. 



"Today: Red-Letter Day' 



Leap Year Birth . . . How the Bell Fell ... Hot Campaign 



By Jo Hendricks 
Today's really a red-letter day 
for more than one reason. The 

best, we guess, is that a soph is 
celebrating what is — for him — a 
rare occasion; a birthday. It's his 
fifth. Congrats, Ted! Say, you're 
to be envied, by the way. Most 
people would like to have only 
ten birthdays at age forty. Be- 
sides, it doesn't tax your lung pow- 
er to blow out five candles., 
February twenty-ninth is the 



first anniversary of something 
that's happened only once in the 
history of the college so far as we 
know. Exactly one week ago to- 
night at precisely 10:10 p. m. the 
tell-weU bell feU. We're talking 
about the victory bell incident, of 
eourse. 

The stage had been set for a 
long time. The arch-rival Reed 
boys were prepared to wreak 
vengeance on the hapless GF'ers 
after that last minute Quaker win 



it has an odd gleam in its eye. It's 
stopping here. No! No! Get away! 

Atchooooooooooo ! Sniff! cough! 
Id a few days I'll be up ad as 
gud as dew, I thig. Atchoooooooo! 
('Scuse be.) 



Coughs and Colds Cover Campus; 
Flu-Shy Say 'Shoo-Fly' to The Bug 

By Rosemary Ramsey 
I suppose I was the first one to spot it. It was strolling across 
the campus one day a little over a month ago when I saw an unusual 
speck in the blue. Coming closer and circling lower, it finally alighted 
by my side. 

After it had inquired as to the whereabouts of Miss Sill, it flu 
in the direction of Edwards Rum- 
oring House. 

I'd almost forgotten the — well, 
let me call it The Bug — until two 
weeks later when, as I was wan- 
dering past the music hall, it flu 
up again. Just then a door open- 
ed and out of the hall walked 
Marilyn Houston, Marilyn Barnes, 
Norman and Orville Winters, Ros- 
etta Ballard, Maribeth McCracken 
and Jack Hoskins. The first Mar- 
ilyn smiled at my friend and I 
concluded that she'd been up late 
the night before entertaining him, 
as she looked rather green around 
the gills. 

Apparently The Bug's interest in 
her was waning, for it hardly no- 
ticed her at all as it climbed 
aboard Norman's trombone case 
and rode gleefully over to Hoover 
Hole. From what I hear, the Win- 
ters boys and Jack had quite a 
time amusing my friend, especial- 
ly after Garth Reece, Bob Adams 
and Dick Zeller started to hslp 
them. Even Dean McNichols and 
Melvin got into the act. 

But eventually The Bug tired 
of their hospitality and headed for 
Kanyon. Sadly enough, however, 
only Rosetta, Dorothy Williams, 
Laura Shook, Betty Brown and 
Muriel Hoover paid any attention 
to The Bug. They, together with 
Miss Willcuts, spent a few days 
making the guest feel at home. 
Presently, though, The Bug's wel- 
come wore thin, but no one could 
hint sufficiently that the little 
visitor was no longer wanted. 

But, alas! Poor Bug! Miss 
Sperry, needle in hand, came to the 
rescue and her attempt to oust 
the boarder was apparently suc- 
cessful. 

It has been a number of days 
since I last saw it, and — oh! There 
comes my little friend now. But — 



a month before. So Reed played 
and led — and lost, for the second 
bitter time. And the gleeful gal- 
lants ran to Hoover and yanked 
the bell-rope. 

"Clang! Clang! Clang" it rang. 
And then, like everything that 
goes up, it came down — clear to the 
floor level of the attic. 

Sequel to the story came the 
next night. After another game 
deadlocked at 57 and won in over- 
time, the fellas again ran to The 
Hole and again rang the bell. 

But it was a different tone this 
time. Seems the guys couldn't 
hang the clanger anymore so they 
hit it to make it sound. 

Tradition, thou art a virtue! 
* * • 

Speaking of victories, there's 
going to be some by Monday night, 
we hope. At least, the voting will 
be over by then. 

Our hats are sure off to the cam- 
paigners, too. What a superla- 
tive, superb, superior, supreme — 
(our Thesaurus ran out) — job they 
did! In short, we're glad some- 
body got on the ball and kicked the 
student body to life.

Can Students Acquire the Gentle Art of Saying 'No 7 ? 



A few weeks ago we were handed the copy of the HUNTINGTON 
NEWS that contained a full-page editorial on the subject, "The Case 
for the Uncooperative." Ever since that time we've often been re- 
minded of that editorial by what goes on in our own college. 

What is true for Huntington (Indiana) college — a small school 
with Christian emphasis — is no less «true for George Fox college. 

Let's take this from our own standpoint. It has been said, in the 
first place, that there is no correlation between extra-curricular ac- 
tivities and grades. However, there are some local members who be- 
long to the species which believes in studying after the extra-curricu- 
lar work ia done. It's not the quality of the attitude that's wrong — 
for what alma mater wouldn't like to have a posterity with that kind 
of loyalty? It is instead the quantity; we're putting out too much 
for the school and not enough for the education. In short, there needs 
to be a better balance between time spent on these worthy extras and 
time spent on those sixteen curricular hours we've signed up for. 

Secondly, if we're to earn those good grades that there's been so 
much talk about, there will have to be more studying done. And unless 
you're a genius there's only one way to get good grades: that's 
to keep plugging away at it. The ones who are continually among 
the GPA leaders aren't necessarily the ones with the highest IQ's; 
they're the ones who use the IQ's they have. 

In the third place it could be shown that we're not taking very 
good care of our physical selves when we're doing too much. Granted, 
we're not on earth for the purpose of whiling away our time and ac- 
complishing nothing. On the other hand, it's up to us to keep our 
physical plants in smooth running order so we can accomplish some- 
thing - tomorrow, as well as today. Too many times that famous 
midnight oil has to supply us until one, two or even three o'clock 
ante meridian. Anybody who runs a motor twenty-four hours a day 
expects it to wear out faster than one that is run sixteen hours per. 
Are our bodies any different in this respect? 

In the physical realm, we're prone to emphasize the sins of com- 
mission rather than the sins of omission. Most of us are aware, for 



example, that our own yearly meeting Discipline holds definite stand- 
ards against marring the body via the liquor and cigarette routines- 
sins of commission. But couldn't "... your body is the temple of 
the Holy Spirit ..." be cited just as well for those things that cause 
us to burn ourselves out — lack of sleep, loss of meals, extra drag on 
energy? These could truly be labeled sins of omission, since they are 
omissions of those building-up processes that are necessary to keep 
us going. 

And that brings us to the point that seems the most pertinent. 
Are we so busy with service in general that we are forgetting the 
source in particular? Jesus, our example, was wont to spend time in 
spiritual preparation before He could give of Himself in ministry. 

There's a sign in the student body prayer room that declares, 
"Whenever you are too busy to pray, you are too busy." At first we 
weren't aware of all the implications of this, thinking it referred to 
daily devotions only. But would there ever be a time when we get so 
involved in temporal and temporary things that we would fail to hear 
the Master telling us to pray for someone right then? This praying 
"without ceasing" is a serious business. And if we really want a re- 
vival next week, we're going to have to be in that attitude of prayer 
at all times. 

It all boils down to this: there's work for everyone to do, but If 
those who are doing the most find it necessary to cut down, we should 
be prepared to take it with a smile. There are many important 
things to do in addition to church and school — deputation, athletics, 
music, journalism, dramatics, et cetera ad infinitum — and many people 
so variously talented that they could take part in every one. With 
God's leading, these people themselves are probably best suited to 
judge how much they shall do and in what directions their interests lie. 

And who knows? Maybe that fellow who hesitantly refused to 
spend last week-end sorting pamphlets for the local "Society for the 
Care and Prevention of the Bugs in Room Twenty-Two" had a reason 
for saying "No-o-o" — and a good one!

Attention Psych Majors: Interesting 
Case Studies Found at Ball Games 

By Marjorie Larrance 
If you ever have a yen to delve into the study of personality dif- 
ferences, just trot right over to the school gym during a close ball 
game and the fans will give you plenty of material for observation. 
Of course, you will probably go nuts too, but can you think of a more 
entertaining way to do so? 

Looking in on a typical scene, we might find . . . 

The game is almost over and the 
bleachers are bedlam of screech- 
ing and nearly crazed — but patri- 
otic rooters. 

But what is that over there? 
There sits Tranquil Tessie and — 
of all things — she is placidly knit- 
ting. Even the brazen bellowing of 
Willie Whippersnapper doesn't 
faze her. 

Willie has the habit of endeavor- 
ing to entertain the entire rooting 
section with his running commen- 
tary of the game flavored with his 
own worn-out slams, which duly 
impress his little clique to the tit- 
tering point. When the referee 
calls a foul, Willie boos and squalls 
about all the dirty playing, not 
stopping to realize that he is do- 
ing plenty of "dirty playing" right 
from the grandstand. 

Enthusiastic Ella has taken up 
her cheering post a couple of rows 
below Willie and is boosting the 
team's morale with her shouts of 
encouragement. She has nearly 
chewed off her fingernails, how- 
ever, during the repeated emotion- 
al stresses. Those standing next 
to her always are a little dishevel- 
ed after the game, but at least 
they are not subjected to an in- 
cessant flow of rude remarks. 

Most of the other spectators are 
pretty ordinary people — players' 
dads, moms and girl friends; 
cheerleaders and acorekeepers; and 
just plain rooters. What a source 
for a psych major to handle— if 
he can stand it!

Doukhobor Choir to Appear in Newberg 
Dressed in Typical Native Costumes 



The Ambassdor Doukhobor choir 
will appear in the Newberg Friends 
church this Sunday, March 2, at 
3 p. m. The choir of twenty-seven 
young people are on a 1,500-mile 
tour under the management of 
Emmett Gulley of Newberg, form- 
erly president of Pacific college. 

The singers, 14 men and 13 
women, belong to the Orthodox 
Doukhobor group which lives in 
Canada. For their concert the men 
will wear modern American garb, 
but the women will appear in the 
typical Doukhobor dress, volumin- 
ous white skirts and blouses with 
beautifully embroidered head 
shawls of white. 

Most of the songs will be sung 
in Russian. Some are pieces creat- 
ed by the group; others are old 
folk songs. Small groups and solos 
will be presented as well as the 
full chorus. The choir sings with 
no conductor and no instrumental 
accompaniment. 

Emmett Gulley has been work- 
ing for more than a year and a 
half with the Orthodox Doukho- 
bors and with the fanatical group 
which has seceded from them and 
then been disowned by them. It is 
this split from the Orthodox Douk- 
hobors that has been guilty of the 
nudism, incendiarism and sabotage 
which are sometimes thoughtless- 
ly attributed to the Doukhobors 
themselves. On the contrary the 
Orthodox group has often-times 
been the worst suffers from these 
acts of lawlessness.

Panel Discusses 
'Campus Courtesy 7 

Two of last week's chapel per- 
iods were devoted to the discussion 
of common campus courtesy. 

On Wednesday the twentieth a 
student panel was presented by 
faculty members Miss Barbara 
Jeanne Sill, Mrs. Donald McNich- 
ols, and Professor Paul Mills. 

Mills introduced Wanda Pier- 
son and announced her theme of 
dining hall manners. Margaret 
Weber, who spoke on the general 
subject of dress, was given the 
floor by Miss Sill. 

The phase of politeness and re- 
spect to visitors and professors 
was covered by Larry Wyman, 
also introduced by Paul Mills. The 
last speaker was ASB prexy Frank 
Starkey, introduced by Mrs. Mc- 
Nichols. In his talk he stressed 
the responsibility of student body 
officers for their offices. He ex- 
plained that the student should be 
"faithful to assigned work." 

At the request of the faculty, 
Paul Mills, head of the Bible de- 
partment, gave on Monday the 
connection between Christianity 
and manners. He cited scriptures 
which dealt directly with this 
phase of Christianity.

Ralph Seel 
a tie for first 



Four strong teams seem to have taken over complete domination 
of the Metropolitan Collegiate conference. The division has left Ore- 
gon Dental, Concordia, George Fox, and Oregon Medical within one- 
half game of each other, while Reed and Multnomah are flounder- 
ing far below. # *.%tt 

Before the next issue of the Crescent is published, the Quakers 
will have played three highly important games. To- i 
night it will be Multnomah at the YMCA. GF is 
favored, but the small floor will tend to balance ' 
the superiority, and an upset might be in the off- 1 
ing. Tuesday at Reed the Balesmen meet Oregon 
Medical, and the Doctors, with four straight con- 
ference wins, are slight favorites. Next Saturday it 
will be Oregon Dental here, in what will probably 
be another close encounter, and could very easily be 
the game of the year. 

Three wins would put the Quakers into at least 
place, with only the Concordia game remaining. A single loss, how- 
ever, would just about spell doom to the chances for anything above 
a deadlock in the final standings. 

The big game tonight is at Concordia, where Oregon Dental is 
being entertained. The victor will take the lead with a 6-2 record, 
while, if GFC and Oregon Medical beat tail-enders Multnomah and 
Reed, the loser will drop into fourth place with a 5-3 showing. If this 
happens the winner of Tuesday's OM-GFC contest will advance into 
a first place tie. 

A little more speculation shows that in the event of an Oregon 
Dental win over Concordia tonight, and all suppositions in the pre- 
ceeding paragraphs becoming realities, George Fox and Oregon Dental 
will be deadlocked for the lead when they meet in Hester Memorial 
gym next Friday, March 7. 

» » » » * 

This has been a real season for uncanny comeback and thrilling 
overtimes. George Fox has played an overtime period in each of her 
last three home games, and has won them all. First was Salem First 
Christian. The score was close all the way, and ended 52-52. GFC 
potted 11 overtime counters, while holding Salem to five, for a 63-57 
victory. Last Friday it was Reed, and the Balesmen came back from 
an 18 point deficit to tie it up, 57-57, and at 14 points overtime won 
it 71-63. The following night Hillsboro Economy Drug led by 11, but 
again a 57-all tie was the outcome, and GFC won 63-60 after the five 
minute period. 

Also outstanding was the fact that Bill Field, center, despite 
measuring only 5:10 in his thickest stockings, hit the key tucket in 
each of last week's games. Field is a senior, and is playing his first 
season as a regular, but when there are only a few seconds to play 
and the Quakers desperately need a bucket, just give the old balloon 
to "Willie" and in it goes. 

***** 

The state high school individual record is taking an unprecedent- 
ed lucking around this year. When the season began three months 
ago, Wade Halbrook of Lincoln held it with 51 in a single game. Then 
one night Johnny Fredricks of Tigard raised it to 52. Big Swede, 
the seven-foot estomorph, regained it at 66, but lost out to Gerald 
Bloom, a boy from Crow high who had a 67 point evening. Halbrook 
took it for the third time of the year, with 71, but the following night 
Jerry Crimmins of Milton-Freewater scored 73.

George Bales' Quakers will play

eight days, each of which may 
have a definite bearing on the out- 
come of the Metropolitan confer- 
ence race. 

The last of these three clashes

week from tonight. The opposing

first place. The "Drillers" are de-

ed 15 times. 

In the preliminary, Woody 
Fletcher's junior varsity beat the 
Reed second-stringers, 54-35. 



George Fox overcame a seemingly unsurmountable lead and fought 
an uphill battle to a 71-63 overtime win over Reed here Friday in a 
Metropolitan conference clash. 

Midway in the second quarter, the Griffins led the frigid Quakers 
34-16. By halftime the Balesmen had pulled to 35-21. 

In the third quarter George Fox, using freshman Paul Ralphs 
in place of the usually high-scor- 
ing Nigel Shockey, went on a 
scoring spree and trailed only 39- 
37 at one time. Another Reed 
burst lengthened the Griffin ad- 
vantage to 49-40 at the end of the 
third quarter. 

With Elmer Kendall, Bill Field 
and Shockey leading the way, the 
Quakers surged into a 51-51 tie 
with three minutes remaining. 
Buckets by Shockey and Field 
gave GFC a four-point bulge, but 
two quick counters by Adams of 
Reed deadlocked the score again, 
and a free throw by Jorgenson put 
the visitors in a 57-56 lead. 

With only seconds remaining. 
Bill Field sank a two-pointer, but 
Reed retaliated with Adams' free 
throw and the game ended 57-57. 

During the five minute overtime 
period, George Bales' netters went 
on a scoring crusade of 14 points 
while holding the enemy to six, 
and the game ended 71-63. 

Elmer Kendall hit eight field 
goals, and 10 of 13 charity tosses 
for a 26 point total to lead the in- 
dividual scoring. League-leading 
point maker Nigel Shockey count- 



Lettermen's Club Host to Kids in Annual 
Grade School Basketball Tournament 



By Elmer Kendall 

The GF club of George Fox is 
again sponsoring the annual invi- 
tational grade school tournament 
which started yesterday morning 
in Hester Memorial gym. 

The tourney is divided into two 
brackets, Class A and B. The di- 
visions are not determined by the 
skill of the teams but by the num- 
ber of students in the school. 

Class B teams consist of La- 
fayette, Gervais, Dundee, Oregon 
Deaf, St. Paul, Grande Ronde, St. 
James and Fall City. 

Class A teams are Jefferson, 
Chemawa, Dayton, McMinnville, 
Willamina, Dallas, Sheridan and 
Newberg. 

Yesterday, each team saw action 
and again today there are eight 
games. Saturday there will be 
four games, with the champion- 
ship game for Class B at 7 p. m. 
and Class A at 8. Consolation 
bracket championships will be 
played off at 5 and 6 p. m. 

There wil be six trophies pre- 
sented after the championship con- 
test Saturday night. Dean Donald 
McNichols will present both 
classes with a first, second and 
consolation trophy. 

The trophies have been donated 
by the Newberg city merchants.

Last year Dallas triumphed in 
the Class A, and Grande Ronde 
was victorious in Class B. Mc- 
Minnville was runner-up and Wil- 
lamina consolation victor in the 
Class A division, while Gervais 
took second and Oregon Deaf con-

Willamette Frosh 
Snare Victory 

A 29 point fourth quarter upset 
George Fox hopes as Willamette's 
Frosh snared a 77-64 win Febru- 
ary 16 at Salem. The Quakers 
meshed 20 in the fatal frame. 

Although outclassed by Bearkit- 
ten heighth the fast-breaking 
Quakers kept the game close and 
the outcome in doubt until the 
final moments of the clash. George 
Fox lost Bill Field and Gerald 
Lemmons in the fourth stanza via 
the foul route. 

Nigel Shockey led all scorers 
with 28 points but 'Cat center 
Larry Baggett chalked up 18, 
mostly with an uncanny hook shot 
from the key. 

Willamette held quarter leads of 
19-16, 44-29, and 48-44.
